Penal Loveseat

romantic, home furniture from the prison visiting room

"Absence makes the heart grow fonder", if only temporary and pretended, is the essence of this loveseat that is really a table with a padded seat on either side. The table, bisected with a pane of a(r)mor glass between wooden side panels, excludes physical contact.

Longing, tearful gazes can be exchanged and hands can nearly touch and kisses nearly meet through the transparent barrier. Working, corded telephone handsets allow the exchange of endearments and plans for the future.

       It'd certainly be better than commiting some heinous criminal act for the same experience. Does one of the lovers leave afterwards to be violated by a seven foot guy named Mandy?

       Can it convert to a conjugal futon?   

       Ha ha ha. My best friend's grandparents could use this. They love each other to death, but can't even share the bedroom anymore. There comes an age when one needs... um, some more privacy, they think. +
